Depends on your country.

In Canada everything over 50 years old is in the public domain.

You can even sell these old shows, (if you can find a sucker, many internet scum companies do).

In the US:
"All copyrightable works published in the United States before 1923 are in the public domain; works created before 1978 but not published until recently may be protected until 2047.For works that received their copyright before 1978, a renewal had to be filed in the work's 28th year with the Library of Congress Copyright Office for its term of protection to be extended. The need for renewal was eliminated by the Copyright Renewal Act of 1992, but works that had already entered the public domain by non-renewal did not regain copyright protection."
